Talk # 4: Aligning, Trusting, Acting...Abundance
I've had a lot of moments of noisy confusion lately but I've also had some beautiful clarity...the below audio is me talking about some of all of that. It all felt a little too much to put into the written word, so, here I am speaking again....
In case you don't get to listen, I want to say what I said at the end of this recording, thank you all SO much for the beautiful, priceless support you've given me here. Your words of encouragement mean so so very much.
On another note,J and I (and 10 other beautiful souls) have completed our 41 days of 6-Word Days. This was far more than I could have ever imagined it being--so connecting and soulful. At the end of the 41 days, J took all of our words and created some magic...to read, scroll way down....
we were openhearted, brave, wise, kind, hilarious, happy and sad.
We filled our days with gratitude, affirmations, struggle, release…
yoga like prayer.
We went to work and stayed home and made decisions.
We took charge, and we relinquished control.
We walked dogs, and played with cats, and mourned a bunny.
We auditioned and hiked and got (sometimes more than) half lit.
We read books and constellations, loved our kitchens and our moms.
We visited doctors, labs, emergency rooms…
We waited for results.
We fell in love with Days 4 and 8 and 14 and 39.
We had SO MUCH TROUBLE sleeping.
… so we all got into bed with Nancy.
We questioned our sanity, our choices, our abilities.
We lost jobs and focus. We lost track of north.
We held each others’ hands.
We celebrated, yearned, gave up on everything one day and started over, determined, the next.
We believed in different things (in God, our dreams, our friends, ourselves) but no matter what we believed in, when life got scary, we each leaned into our faith.
We had epiphanies and relearned old truths about the joy of singing, the power of just starting, the value of quiet, the healing properties of the ground, the sky, the trees, the beginnings and endings of days.
For 41 days we were together,
alive and aware and fucked up and remarkable.
And we were, absolutely, concise.

She also (incredibly) took the time to arrange all of our words into sweet little glimpses. To see mine and other's glimpses, click here.
Thank you, J, and all of you other lovely ones, for a very touching 41 days. I'm so grateful to have been a part of this beauty.
